GRAYSON COUNTY, TEXAS -- On Halloween, we enjoy the creepy and crawly, but no one wants hazards to happen on Halloween.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office asks parents to plan a trick-or-treat route with their kids and go with them along the way, walking only on sidewalks and not in the street.

Another important tip is to grab a flashlight and put reflective tape on childrens' costumes.

As for drivers, don't drink and drive, eliminate distractions and slow down.

"This is the one night of the year that children are out, they're running from door to door. Like I said, they're not paying attention to the cars going up and down the street, so the drivers really need to slow down below the speed limit, pay close attention," Lt. Rickey Wheeler said.

Wheeler says Grayson County hasn't had trouble with tainted candy in recent years, but never accept unpackaged goods, like fruit or baked items.
